Zangle Cove #8

6/5/10 "Zangle Cove #7", 9" x 9", Oil
Limited Palette--Analogous: Dioxine Purple, Cobalt Blue, Viridian, Permanent Green Light, Titanium White, Ivory Black

My view out the back is so green and blue, I decided to try an analogous color scheme with cool colors, permanent green light being the warmest. It is still a matter of finding the warm/cool contrasts.


  1. Hi Kathryn, I really enjoy your "slice of the pigment spectrum" experiment. Thanks for for giving the the specific paints you used. I think I'll try something like it too, if only to find out where Ivory Black fits into the warm to cool range.

  2. Hi Steve--not everybody uses black but I like it in certain circumstances. It is a blue-black, so some would consider it cool, but next to ultramarine, it is warm. Its all relative.
